Mom Calling Cards :: Printables

I love the idea of a calling card. Obviously in my professional life I hand out business cards, but calling cards just seem so much more personal and old-fashioned. I created these mom calling cards in anticipation of my own little man arriving soon and the inevitable play dates that will follow.

I made the file a fillable pdf, which means you can customize these free printable calling cards. You only need to enter your information on the upper-most lefthand card, and your info will automatically fill-in on the other cards when you hit ‘tab.’ I included two lines for your name, in case you have a longer name. If you have a short name like me, using the top line is optional.

Since these cards are not baby- or kid-themed, you could also use these cards as your own personal calling card. Instead of using the second line to list your kid’s name, you could list your website or blog.

How to Print and Cut the Labels

What you’ll need:

Option 1:

  • Printer
  • I designed these cards to fit the Avery Business Cards 8371 template. If you don’t want to cut out your cards, you can simply buy this paper at any office supply store.

Option 2:

  • Printer
  • Paper (I recommend card stock)
  • Paper cutter – the rotary paper trimmers that are popular with crafters work best, but you can also use a t-square and razor blade. Scissors make it tricky to get a perfect square.

Start measuring and cutting from the top left corner.

  1. Print out on single page, front and back.
  2. When looking at the front of the printout, margins are as follows: top 0.75″, bottom 0.75″, left 0.5″, right 0.5″. Remove margins to begin cutting individual cards.
  3. Each card is 2″W x 3.5″L.

NOTE – these are offered for your personal use only. You cannot reproduce for profit or present as an original design.

Handmade Care Labels :: Printables

I created this handmade gift tag to go along with two baby blankets I recently gifted. Both blankets needed to be gently washed and laid flat to dry, so the care instructions on the backside reflect this. These gift tags will work great for you if your are gifting delicate and/or wool pieces.

Congratulations Baby Card :: Printables

Congratulations Chevron Card

A friend of mine is expecting her first baby – a little girl! She is decorating her room in yellow and cream chevron stripes. I’m currently knitting her the Chevron Baby Blanket designed by the Purl Bee in soft yellow and vanilla stripes.

Congratulations Chevron Card

Chevron stripes are everywhere right now, so I wanted the card to match the blanket. But everything I’ve seen has just plain stripes. I decided to put baby related clipart into the yellow stripe, and I think it turned out really cute! I tried to leave these gender neutral so you can use them for a baby girl or baby boy. Enjoy!

The cards are designed for a printer with 0.25″ margins. Each card is W 5″ x H 6.75″ flat, W 5 x H 3.375″ folded (fits in A1 envelope). Start measuring and cutting from the top left corner. Trim 0.25″ from top edge and left edge, then measure and cut top card. There is 0.25″ gutter between the two cards. After cutting out first card, cut off the 0.25″ gutter, then measure and cut second card.

Handmade Care Labels :: Printables


I have been knitting for about two years, and my closet has quickly filled with scarves and cowls. A person can only have so many neck-themed accessories, so this Christmas I will be presenting some knitted items to my loved ones.

Rather than including the care label that came with the yarn with each piece, I’ve created these care labels that can be easily customized with a few handwritten notes.

How to Customize the Labels

This symbol stands for machine wash. You can write down the water temperature on the line (Cold, Warm, Hot). If the item should be handwashed, simply cross out this symbol and write “handwash” on the line.


This symbol stands for bleach. Some people really love to use bleach, especially on blankets and dish cloths. Let them know if bleach is okay for the yarn that you used. If it’s not, cross out this symbol.


Most knitted pieces should be dried flat to help them keep their shape, but not always. This symbol stands for dry flat, but you can write “tumble dry” on the line if you want.
